If you want to double—or even triple—your dividend income overnight, there’s an easy way to do it: buy stocks that pay special dividends.

And today I’ve got 3 totally ignored special-dividend payers for you. Each of these top-notch income plays throws off “hidden” payouts yielding up to 9.7%!

We’ll unmask all 3 as we roll through this article. We’ll also look at the almost comical reason why stocks like these get completely overlooked, and I’ll give you everything you need to get in on the next big special payout before it drops.

A $2-Trillion Cash Stash Looking for a Home

It happens like clockwork: a company announces a blowout quarter or a hike in its regular payout … and rolls out a big special dividend either days before or just after.… Read more

First-level investors are at it again, crowing that now is a great time to give the vaunted Dividend Aristocrats another look.

(You’ve probably heard of these darlings of the income world: they’re the 53 stocks that have hiked their dividends for 25 straight years or more.)

Desperate for a Deal

So why is now supposedly a great time to buy these payout poster boys?

Because according to a recent Barron’s article, the ProShares S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats ETF (NOBL), the passive fund that holds all 53 of these stocks, is trading at 18.1 times forecast earnings for this fiscal year. That’s below the average of 18.8 over the last three years.…

Remember the panic selling in February? It all seems silly now—the economy is surging, companies are beating high earnings expectations and American consumers are more confident than ever.

And the stock market is finally catching on—the S&P 500 is up a solid 5.9% in 2018, and the momentum for stocks to go higher is clearly there.

You’re Not Too Late for the Biggest Profits

The good news? You can get into this raging bull market and still see a lot of upside.

Since the market is still a sliver off its all-time high (which it hit in January, before the plunge), we are nowhere near a top—especially since earnings have soared since then.…

With the recent market downturn, you might be worried that stocks are headed for trouble. Don’t be.

Because there’s one really good reason to be greedy now that the market has become fearful again, and it can be summed up in two words: earnings season, which “officially” kicks off when Alcoa (AA) reports its results on July 18.

So far, 2018 has been one of the best years for company earnings in history—and that trend is set to continue.

First, let me tell you why. Then I’ll give you 3 funds you can buy today to lock in the gains that this temporarily depressed market is set to hand us.…

One of the best things about closed-end fund (CEF) investing is the terrific “bonus” discounts CEFs give us on stocks and other investments.

Here’s what I mean by a bonus discount: CEFs often trade at a level far different—and cheaper—than their net asset value (NAV), or the market price of a fund’s portfolio holdings.

And these discounts aren’t peanuts: you can easily snag CEFs trading at, say, $1.00 per share when their “real” value is $1.10 share—or more.

Right now, there are 3 low-risk, highly diversified funds trading at a near 20% discount to their NAVs (17.6%, on average). All 3 boast dividend yields far higher than the average S&P 500 stock, with one set to pay us up to 9% in cash, in the form of a special dividend.…
